Ascent Trip Report

A long time ago but we went up Nineteen Mile Brook trail and this was a pleasant hike to the pond. At that point a right takes you to Wildcat mountain and a left takes you to Carter Dome, we turned left. This trail is steep and scrambling over and up but it is fun. Great view off of a little ledge on the backside but when at the top the view of Mount Washington and Tuckermans ravine is fantastic. On the way down it does not go far before going back up to Mount Hight. From there down to Zeta Pass and then Carter Dome Trail back to Nineteen Mile Brook trail and the car.
